BARNSLEY boss Danny Wilson is hoping to bring in one or two new players in time for Saturday's trip to Charlton Athletic.

Wilson, who's still looking for his first win since taking charge of the Reds for a second time, has held talks with owner Patrick Cryne and chief executive Ben Mansford.

It's understood Cryne has made money available in order to keep the club in the Championship.

"I had a very positive response from the owner," Wilson said. "Mr Cryne has put a lot of money into this club and it's down to his generosity where it is today.

"He fully understands the situation we're in and he knows how important it is to try and stay in this division."

Wilson's already been on the lookout for a striker and another pacey attacker.

The Oakwell club have struggled in front of goal this season, scoring just 21 times in 24 league games.

"We're looking at a few players and hoping to get them in as soon as possible," he added.

"I could go for every position, but we need to prioritise. I'd like three or four players in this window.

"We need some pace in our team. Nothing against the boys here, but we need that aspect to frighten the life out of defenders."

It was announced on Thursday morning that the club had signed Liverpool youngster Ryan McLaughlin on a 28-day loan.
